They're not telling you that you can't consume it, they're limiting the quantity you can get at one time. There's a significant difference between
the two. And while I think this is kind of stupid, god knows the US could collectively do well to lose some weight.
Whats the difference? Sorry you can't have any salt either because you're too fat.
We could collectively do well to lose some weight? Based on what stats? Have you ever been to the US? Do you even have the slightest idea what you are
So because some people are overweight, we should all be punished collectively. OK Gotcha.
Anyways, I know this is gonna twist your brain, but sugar doesn't cause obesity. But do you know what does? Its called aspartame and that is what is
used in Diet soft Drinks here in the US, it is an artificial sweetener.
Trust me, Ive worked in the restaurant industry and this is not rocket science. I've seen overweight children come in with overweight parents, guess
what they ALL order? Diet Cokes. It never fails. But not only that, they drink faster than those people who order other drinks. I will bring them
their first drink and offer them an appetizer, by the time I ring it in and return to their table, their entire drink is already gone and it never
fails. I have never seen anyone drink a regular soda or Coke that fast, but when it comes to Diet Coke I will watch them drink at least 5 or 6 glasses
per sitting, it never fails. In fact your supposed to fill the cup with ice before serving but in the case of Diet drinks I put hardly any ice in it
at all, because I already know they are going to down it in 2 seconds flat and then demand another one, before I even have a chance to return to the
kitchen. IT NEVER FAILS, EVER!
Guess what all the average people that order, regular sodas, tea or water, but never Diet drinks.
